the importance of growth. i just came from a hearing in the energy subcommittee of energy and commerce. we were fortunate enough to hear from the -- one of the members of the railroad commission in texas. the railroad commission doesn't have anything to do with trains any more, it has to do with energy. the commissioner from texas was at the committee hearing and i asked him a question, i said in the ryan budget that we will hear about tomorrow, there is an estimate of $11 billion over the next 10 years that will be paid to the federal government because of development of oil and natural gas on federal land. i said i'm from texas. that number seems a little bit light to me. i would expect the amount of revenue produced on federal lands from oil and gas production, assuming we don't legislate it out of existence through the environmental protection agency, he said in texas the two-year budget figure for oil and goes coverage taxes is $7 billion. well, that would be a significantly greater amount than the $11 billion estimated in the ryan budget. i asked mr. ryan about this last night at the rule

in the gulf is the trade of energy between the gulf and asia. as we talk about burden sharing, what is the world for partnerships, while the country's already close allies and countries which are not allies, but which are relying on an energy from the gulf? should we be thinking about that differently in the budget context you have described? >> that is the argument you here. like 27like this -- things the united states can achieve a level of independence. why would we continue to be concerned about the energy that flows out of the gulf? my answer to that is i did not go to the gulf in 1991 and stayed there for about the next 20 years because of oil. that is not why i went, not what my children wet. we went there because we thought that a region of the war where we had not -- except for a few bilateral relationships, where we had not invested in me -- much of our band with in intellectual energy, commitment -- we went there in 1991 because of the-- because aggression of hussain, but we went there because the future of the region was typed our future, and not too distant, oil, but ra
our domestic demand. today new technologies have enabled us to access previously inaccessible energy resources, and almost overnight america's energy resource picture flipped from deficit to surplus. in the past five years we've become stronger as a nation through the developed of these god-given resources. as a result we are more competitive. from low income to the high tax brackets, everyone is benefiting. the future's bright but only if we educate the half truths and begin telling the real story of america's natural gas revolution. the stories about technology, private sector innovation, investment, financial risk, thousands of new jobs, new competition, new growth, a growing and better standard of living for more americans, lower energy costs, new industries, a revitalized energy sector, more jobs, more growth, energy security and optimism. this is the story of america's natural gas revolution. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the entleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentlelady from illinois seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house

to the unfair and inaccurate attack on a clean energy company that's located in my home state of nevada. the republican proposal refers to the solar reserve project as an ill-fate adventure. had he done his home work, budget committee chairman ryan would have discovered that this cutting edge solar project is not ill-fated but instead has long-term contract with our state's largest utility, it has created 450 good-paying jobs for nevadans and it's running on schedule and underbudget. the assertions being made in the republican budget undermine the success of renewable energy programs, the jobs they create and the investment they represent and our nation's future energy needs. in las vegas and across the country, americans have made it clear that our budget should be a path forward for a strong middle class and serious investment in the next generation of americans. let's reject these mathematical gimmicks and unstub staveragiated attacks and -- unsubstantiated attacks and get to work on a real budget. thank you and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlem
